Au programme

We will discover the most beautiful streets of Gion at the very best time to see it as the city lights start to come on and the laneways are all lit up in lantern light. I will take you on a walk through the "geisha" quarters where these icons of Japanese culture still live and work. We might even get a chance to see a girl or two on their way to an appointment if we are lucky during the "geisha spotting" part of the tour.

Then we will visit the temple grounds of the oldest zen temple in Kyoto at Kenninji. I will teach you a little of what I know about this special faith and then we will visit a shinto shrine showing you the contrast of the two faiths.

After that, it's more beautiful cobble stoned streets and atmospheric views. A special treat being the view of the famous Yasaka pagoda all lit up with the night sky behind it. We wander more in this Higashiyama district of preserved buildings taking you down secret alleyways along the way.

Finally, we take a walk through the more modern part of Gion where the well heeled crowd go to let loose. I can tell you all about the nightlife culture of contemporary Japan and how the history has influenced the modern day.

I am a huge fan of Japan and as a resident of Kyoto since 2007 and a tour guide for the past four years I am so happy to have the chance to share with you what I have learned and entertain you along the way. I take you down all my favourite streets in Gion and tell you all about the mysterious world of the geisha and also a little background about shinto and buddhism in this special city. I know the best places to spot geisha and have been studying about the geisha culture for many years. Looking forward to meeting you and teaching you a little about this fascinating culture!

I did this tour with Paul. He was an excellent tour guide, knowledgeable and passionate about Kyoto. A resident of Kyoto but American born he was extremely easy to communicate with and understood the things us foreigners get confused about. There is so much to see in this beautiful and fascinating part of the city that it is a little fast paced to fit everything in. It's an interesting tour with lots of information. I would recommend it to anyone.

Niall is a very good guide! It was not a safari. He explained in a nice way the history behind geisha' world. I recommend also his pub tour.

What an interesting night. Niall displayed a wealth of knowledge. His knowledge of the areas we walked was evident, he knows what he is talking about and was able to field every question from the group he was asked. Niall is a friendly and very pleasant and happy man. I would recommend a tour with Niall to anyone that would like to see the real Kyoto. A most enjoyable night.

Niall was a great guide. Met us right on time and took us on a fascinating walk with twists and turns through quiet streets where Geisha live while they train, past their schools and bars where they work. Caught some glimpses of scurrying girls. We visited several temples and a pagoda, passing an excellent evening with lots of discussion about things mostly Japanese, but other travel as well. Very laid back, easy paced and highly recommended.

Niall was very accommodating as the only date we could do he was out of town, however his colleague Paul took the tour. The tour was above our expectations and was certainly one of our top highlights in Kyoto. It was perfectly paced and we saw more than we anticipated which was awesome and though they are very tricky to see, we were lucky to see a few Geishas! Definitely recommend this tour as you will learn so much about the area which looks stunning at night.
